Trouble TTC

Frustrated about HSG, any of you know what the OOP cost is?

I had a monitoring u/s yesterday and they called me after to say that there is fluid in my left ovary which could indicate a blocked tube.  I told the nurse that I had inquired about having an HSG done, but was told that my insurance wouldn't cover it until I had ovulated for 6 cycles.  That seems ridiculous to me because in 9 months I got my period once, so the only way I ovulate is to take Clomid which is a complete waste if my tube is blocked...The original plan was to do 3 cycles and if I wasn't pregnant to do an HSG and talk about IUI (I am assuming).  My RE is away until after labor day, but I am going to call and talk to her nurse about everything this morning.  Of course my lead follicle is on my left this time (last time it was on the right) so now I am feeling like this cycle is a bust, which it definitely is if my tube is blocked.  For you OOP ladies, did you have an HSG done, if so, what was the cost?

    I'm OOP and my HSG was $500.  That's crazy that your insurance would cover it after you ovulate for 6 cycles.  I've never heard of that.  Good luck!

    Mine was over $700 with insurance, but it was because I had to meet the $500 deductible and then it was 80/20.

    My insurance covered it, but I originally received a bill due to a billing mistake.  The total cost on the bill was $1500 and they charged me $750 (I think they indicated my insurance covered half, when in fact they paid in full).  This was at a MA hospital.
